Is there something more comforting than a good cup of hot chocolate? We appreciate it even more in the fall or winter season, that’s a fact, but it’s also good all year long. Perhaps it’s the childhood reminiscences of those days in the mountains in winter or those family evenings shared at our granny’s house? What is certain is that no matter what it reminds us, hot chocolate always soothes and goes so well with cocooning.
Everyone has its recipe and the way to perfume it. Some add marshmallows, whipped cream, spices or vanilla. Of course we can melt dark chocolate pieces in a pan while mixing it with milk until you get a nice smooth texture.
Personally, I’m quite a fan of cocoa powder, but not just any, as they are not all as good. Lately I’ve discovered one that is better than any I had the pleasure to taste: the full flavor cocoa powder of La Fée Gourmande (The Gourmet Fairy), a charming chocolate factory in Kamouraska, Quebec.
What makes it so special? A very dark and perfume cocoa, perfect for purists. La Fée Gourmande also offers a hot chocolate mixture made of raw chocolate, cocoa and spices for something different. And the best of all? No need to go there to enjoy it, even if the place is worth the travel, since we can order this delicious cocoa directly from the online store.
